JSC Lithuanian railways is one of the largest Lithuanian companies which employs more than 10,000 employees. LG provides passenger/freight transportation by rail and maintenance of the country's public railway infrastructure.

 

The main LG concern is how to save people's lives at level crossings where road and rail meet contributing a great potential for fatalities and injuries. Therefore the company's actions for the European Road Safety Charter will be targeting the general population with the following measures:

1. Every year 1-2 preventive action at high risk level crossings where drivers and pedestrians will be informed about accidents which have occurred in the past at level crossings and correct procedures of passage. They also will be asked to conform to the safety requirements as laid down within The Road Traffic Rules.
This action will be performed by the Traffic Police and Lithuanian railways officials, and will be carried out at crossings which are known to be high risk level crossings. Safety leaflets will be distributed.

2. At level crossings where recent fatalities or injuries occurred, incident warning signs (boards) will be placed informing both pedestrians and drivers of the dangers which could happen at these level crossings.

3. Lectures regarding the safe passage at level crossings and other railway safety requirements for school pupils from 1st to 6th class from Vilnius City area and other Lithuania regions will be held in the Railway Museum.

4. Finally articles/advertisements concerning safe passage at level crossings and safety information will be published in the Regional/National Press around the year.

Duration of commitment: three years.
